It depends on what you want to buy...and how deep your pockets are! Via dei Condotti has many of the high end designer shops, you will find lots of high street clothes shops  on Corso Street but if you want some of the quirkier shops for clothes and food wander down to Trastevereand find some out of the way shops. Look out for markets (they spring up all over the place) to find hidden gems. There's a good flea market on 2nd Saturday and Sunday of the month on Via Francesco Crispi near Piazza del Popolo and a big market every Sunday morning in Porta Portese

Folks have given some great responses here, but I'll chime in to say that Via del Corso and the surrounding areas (including Piazza di Spagna or the "Spanish Steps") is the best for mainstream shops and designer duds. Bonus points for close proximity to Trevi Fountain and Capitoline Hill - it's easy to do both shopping and sightseeing when you spend a day in this part!

I love Campo de' Fiori for street vendors and smaller, tourist shops. Additionally, Trastevere has some good boutiques - especially Carlo Cecchini for shoes! I shared a few more of my fave boutiques (spread out throughout the city) here.

Hope you shop 'til you drop! :)

I work near the Via dei Condotti where there are all kinds of luxury stores like Louis Vuitton, Gucci - Roma, Prada, Christian Dior and a million other very expensive brands. It’s also right near the Spanish Steps which is a great place to hang out and people watch.

My favorite street, though is the Via Margutta where there are antique boutiques and art galleries. Some of them have good posters even if you can’t afford the real art.

Hi Julie,

The more touristy and well known areas are Corso Street and Piazza di Spagna, here you will find all the known brands.

For a less touristy place, check out Via Cola di Rienzo, nice shops but not super expensive designer stores.

Happy shopping!

I don't know them all, but you will find a HUGE shopping district with high end stores just at the bottom of the Spanish Steps.

Hi there Julie!

Rome has awesome shops!! Everytime I go there I am overwhelmed :D

The Tridente area is cool, I mean Via dei Condotti, Via BorgognonaVia Frattina and the area around Piazza di Spagna has many boutiques where you can find everything from local designers to high fashion brands.

Just be careful and don't bring too much cash or you gonna spend them all XD

Actually it depends on your budget. All the luxury shops are around Piazza di Spagna. But the truth is you can buy the same luxury product in all over the world because there's Gucci, Louis Vuitton, etc. everywhere. So Rome doesn't really have any unique attractions for shopping as it had 20 years ago. So the answer is "nowhere". Rome may only be a place to eat italian food and to observe some talkative Italians. The real shopping places of the world are now Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur, Istanbul, where you can find a variety of products and if you still want to spend money in brands like LV these cities all have all the luxury brands. But in addition, in these cities you'll discover new styles, modernly designed shopping areas or traditional bazaars where you can enjoy good quality shopping with an original style.

Try the Monti neighbourhood of Rome for vintage, retro, & handmade clothes. There's an excellent market The Monti market on weekends which has wonderful original clothes, jewelery, bags etc. The Monti area isn't far from the Colosseum, and about a 25 min walk from Termini station. Also great for nightlife.
